Spotlight Technique: Floating and Fluttering



A different take on butterflies. This card features the spotlight technique and uses the Floating and Fluttering set from the January- June Mini Catalog.

I love the clean and simple style of this black and white color scheme with just a small pop of color. 




I colored the spotlight area of the card using various Stampin’ Blends. 


Measurements:
Basic White: 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"
Basic White: 3 3/4" x 5" for stamped background image and sentiment
Basic White: 2" x 2" stamp focal image and color
Basic Black: 4" x 5 1/4" mat for background image 
Basic Black: 2 1/8" x 2 1/8" mat for focal image. Place over matching background image with dimensionals

Sneak Peak: Stampin' Up!'s new In Colors




It's sneak peak time!   Here is my first peak at the new 2021-2023 in Colors.  I made a few cards to show you how the new colors play nicely together.


Fresh Freesia is definitely my favorite new color!  It looks so gorgeous when paired with Soft Succulent.  

I think you are going to love these new colors. 

For these cards inspired by Heidi Collins, I used a post it note in the center of my basic white cardstock and then stamped the vine and floral images from Vine Design around the post it note.  I removed the post it note then stamped my sentiment in the negative framed space in the center.  

I added some of the fun new Loose Flower Flourishes from the upcoming annual catalog.


Vine Design will be available until June.  This is a great stamp set to add to your collection because of the fantastic selection of sentiment stamps.  The coordinating dies are absolutely beautiful too.


The new In Colors will be available May 4th!  If you can't wait to get your hands on them, you can join my team of discount shoppers and add the new In Color products to your starter kit.  Join Now...
